You can change the retention setting for an existing object. With HTTP, you can also specify a retention setting when you store an object in the namespace. The following information describes the retention settings you can specify.

With WebDAV, CIFS, or NFS, you change the retention setting on an object by overwriting its retention.txt metafile. In the new file, you specify a single value that tells HCP what change to make. This value must be on a single line. To ensure that HCP processes the value correctly, end the line with a carriage return.

Tip: With Windows and Unix, you can also use the echo command to insert the new value into the retention.txt metafile.
